The rejection of a break up can really hurt. It’s not uncommon for many of us to feel that our relationships are one of the basic foundations of our lives. When your girlfriend tells you that she wants out and you suddenly find yourself single, it can really make you question a lot of things.

Maybe you realized that you made some serious mistakes in your relationship and you want to make things right. But how can you tell if your ex-girlfriend still like you or if you still have a shot with her? Here are a few signs your ex wants you back:

First, keep in mind that, although most people are decent, some may try to take advantage of you. Be on the look out for obvious things that your ex-girlfriend might say or do to manipulate you or string you along. If she seems to want something from you, such as gifts or favors, but you really don’t seem to making any real progress with her, be very careful dealing with her.

You have to look beyond surface things that she may say or do just to string you along. Take everything she says with a grain of salt. So then, what should you look for?

Look at her actions. While words can easily be faked, actions are much more difficult. Did she remember your birthday or do something special for you? Ask yourself if these are the kinds of things that someone who holds you in their thoughts? If they are, then you know that your ex-girlfriend is still thinking of you.

If you still hold a special place in her thoughts, then you can bet that you still have a shot at getting her back. You see, as long as she associates any sort of emotion with you, then you can easily rekindle that spark. The only real problem comes when she seems indifferent or completely cold toward you.

Also look at her body language. There is an entire science to body language, but I don’t think it is helpful to really obsess over every little fidget or detail. After all, one body language cue taken out of context can be completely misleading and won’t tell the whole story.

Instead what you want to do is focus on the over all picture. Ask yourself if this is the over all body language of a woman that is interested in you, or one who isn’t? It is a good sign if her body language is open and generally leaning toward you. It is a bad sign if she is closed off and pulling away from you.

Use these signs to know if your ex wants you back or not. Remember though to watch out for cues that she might be trying to string you along or take advantage of you. If it ever seems like she likes you but you don’t ever seem to be making progress with her, then seriously question whether or not she may be trying to take advantage of you.
